Solace for the weekend.....

Feel's like I had found an oasis in scorching heat.....just heard from JMMA (Journal for Mathematical Modelling and Algorithms) . That they have accepted a work which I had done at the school related to polygon enclosure algorithms titled "Optimal algorithms for some polygon enclosure problems for VLSI Physical Design". No Idea in which month they will publish it but just finished off a final LaTeX version of it. I remember I submitted this around Nov-2003 and they had screened it now really loooong time right? (Ref No:100335). I almost forgot about this submission was having no hopes on this but suddently it comes back at right time helping my confidence. Really speaking after school I did'nt do much research. But I always use to tell my friends that I'am still working on that "external memory algorithms project" but could really never finish it off. May I got really complacent these days....but "Its never tooo late to get it back!!!"

Corporate victimization of enthusiasm.......

I guess you should have been hearing things like "Employee centered company" , "Employee * company". This is just to exploit the energy of the young kids in the company get the work done at a very cheap price. Ultimately bussiness is just making money yes thats true. But the way the current corporate culture is evolving these days in india especially of the outsource buzz word is really pathetic. The managers who take the initiative of settting up shops in india for corporates tend to be extremely selfish...selfish and selfish, this is not silicon valley attitude of "Win...Win" in the managers. Yes I'am currently a victim of this and I really had a feel of this selfishness, I dont know any where else but atleast in indian corporates (MNC's) this is what every one crib about...I felt really demotivated about these vices in the corporate culture of india. I feel that there is no use of doing things proactively taking up responsibilty and showing an effective commitment towards in getting things done ultimately. I have learnt a lesson that you should just do what ever is enough and nothing more. Live your life do what you think is good and what you think is right. Dont become an work addict at the corporate there are better places where you can prove your self and prove not just to the corporate to the complete world, write opensource software make opensource software run efficiently fix bugs in them do research and what not you can do any thing what ever you like.... So the bottom line is "Never count on anyone except your self!"

IPOD Mini on the go......

28-03-05_0844, originally uploaded by vamsi.

Recently bought an IPOD mini for just
$199 . I felt this to be really great no hassles of batteries, no hassles of space (4GB). I really feel like throwing my samsung YEPP-90S (64 MB) mp3 player.

The great thing about IPOD's is their integration with audible ( click here). I could really play all my audiobooks in audible format without converting them into mp3's. Yes now I turned out into an audible freak listening tons of audio books in my down time.....guys wondering why I have photo of mine rather than an IPOD mini here??......keep guessing
